It is Halloween week and I am sure that many of the children and adults in Tokyo are looking forward to the events on Halloween day. Everyone have a great time and be careful out there.
Last week’s assignment was a difficult one!
Could you get these proverbs?
- You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. – When you try to do something great, you’ll probably make a few people annoyed or angry. Don’t worry about those people; just focus on the good results.
- A watched pot never boils. – If something takes time to finish, don’t watch it too closely because it will seem like it’s taking forever.
- Actions speak louder than words. – Just saying that you’ll do something doesn’t mean much. Actually doing it is harder and more meaningful.
- If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. – Don’t try to improve something that already works fairly well. You’ll probably end up causing new problems.
- Too many cooks spoil the broth. – When there are too many people trying to lead and give their opinions, it’s confusing and leads to bad results. Jobs and projects should have one or two strong leaders.
- Easy come, easy go. – When you get money quickly, like by winning it, it’s easy to spend it or lose it quickly as well.
- Necessity is the mother of invention. – When you’re really in need, you think of creative solutions to your problems.
- Familiarity breeds contempt. – When you’re around someone for too long, you get tired of them and annoyed by them.
- You can’t judge a book by its cover. – Things sometimes look different than they really are. A restaurant that looks old and small might have amazing food, for example.
- Two heads are better than one. – When two people cooperate with each other, they come up with better ideas.
Well, the challenge for this week is the following:
TRANSITIVE and INTRANSITIVE verbs.
As I am sure you all know, transitive verbs take objects and intransitive verbs do not. There are three commonly confused sets. They are:
SIT vs. SET
RISE vs. RAISE
LAY vs LIE
Do you think you can explain the differences between them? Good luck and I look forward to hearing from you.
